For 17-year-old Coco Gauff, breaking records is a regular occurrence.
The American tennis star was at it again on Monday, becoming the youngest woman to reach a grand slam quarterfinal since 2006 at the 2021 French Open.
"I feel like all my matches have been -- I don't know how to say it, but straightforward wins, like no crazy three sets and stuff," said world No. 25 Gauff.
At 17 years and 86 days old, Gauff is the youngest player to make a grand slam quarterfinal since Nicole Vaidisova reached the last eight at the 2006 French Open.
Gauff also became the youngest American to reach quarterfinal of grand slam since Venus Williams did at the 1997 US Open.
"I'm going to always still be learning no matter how many matches I win," Gauff said.
